Moving out of Essex and back into Suffolk, we head for the small pits at Bawdsey. First we clock a Red-crested Pochard in the first lagoon along with Goosander, Great-crested & Little Grebe. Walking along there are numerous Reed Buntings, Meadow Pipits and Pied Wagtails in and out of the Reeds & Tamarisk. Then finally we set eyes on our first true summer visitor, two Willow Warblers bouncing around the Tamarisk.
In the other pools there are a mixture of Pochard, Coot & Widgeon and a likely looking Sparrowhawk soars high over. Life bird count: 376 Year bird count: 127 Month bird count: 72
